Managing data has entered a higher realm. FreeStor is the new paradigm in data services. With the brilliance of a single, software-defined platform that works across legacy, modern and virtual environments, IT managers can tap the smartest data solutions from one pane of glass.
FreeStor lets you turn data services on and off as needed to best fit your business needs — without incurring added costs or constraints of hardware limitations.
FreeStor combines cutting-edge horizontal platform architecture with the ability to leverage new storage options. The result is greater efficiencies, reduced downtime, lower costs, and improved simplicity.
Horizontal architecture with a single platform, and a single price
Seamless migration of data to, from and across storage platforms
Centralized management for enhanced simplicity
Access the latest storage venues like the cloud, hybrid cloud, SDS and Flash
This is all possible due to Intelligent Abstraction TM. FreeStor’s horizontally layered architecture allows data to flow across all platforms, both physical and virtual. Front-end applications and servers link seamlessly with back-end storage resources for increased simplicity, minimal downtime, lower costs, and pay only for the capacity used.
FreeStor sets your data free.
FreeStor is available in software only (via the FreeStor Software Appliance Kit) and as part of hardware - refer to datasheets for further details.
